The challenge that the modern technology is facing today is to provide a quality and better signal strength to users. Since the most widely deployed and used mobile computing device today is the mobile phone, so there is a need to provide good services to the customers. The purpose of this project is to present the study on the impact of Received Signal Strength (RSS) and signal quality between two network providers which are Celcom (013) and Digi (010) in Shah Alam area. Both of these providers are the main telecommunication service providers in Malaysia. This paper focused on the collecting and analyzing data by monitoring cellular activities using the CellTrack software. These processes involving in the use of two NOKIA phone with the Global Positioning System (GPS) that enable the data on coordinate of every checkpoint along the route to be recorded. The data was collected in three days and three times per day for fine day and one data collection for raining day in order to see any variation in the Received Signal Strength (RSS) and signal quality at different time and different weather condition. The result shown that the Digi provider is better in received signal strength (RSS) compared to Celcom provider.
